Helpful staff, very nice decor, very tasty food, some quite spicy!! Would certainly recommend. A bit noisy because of children. Lovely walk from dock and from town centre.

Good evening, Was hoping to call in at 1800 before going to the Mayflower, without being rude is there prompt service to allow us to enjoy a meal before the theatre? Do you have a buffet tomorrow night? Very many thanks.

Kuti's Royal Pier Thai must be the most attractive restaurant in Southampton.Originally the old Royal Pier Frontage, the building has been sympathetically renovated to a grand auditorium and has a lovely atmosphere.Upstairs the view across the Solent can be quite breathtaking and romantic.Downstairs the spacious area makes it ideal for special occasions.
